An ideal gift for those of us who passionately enjoy to writing, cooking and eating well . . .
In a world now dominated by reality TV shows, that particular genre itself is dominated by one type of program: cooking shows. Amateur cooks judged by the professionals, competitive bake-offs, “master chef” competitions, restaurant overhauls, travel shows that deal only with finding the best local food – there are even food-only networks that encourage us all to get back into the kitchen. But behind every great dish, there has to be a great chef.
Montegrappa, being Italian, has an affinity for fine food, a love seasoned with the utmost respect for the masters of the culinary arts. To celebrate the culture of the chef, a role that has been elevated to the level of rock star, Montegrappa has created a family of pens which present, through key details, the spirit of the chef in a writing instrument. It begs to compose recipes and shopping lists, or to sign checks in restaurants.
Montegrappa has made just 999 of these for World-wide distribution and we are lucky enough to be able to have number 009/999 in stock now (this serial number is engraved on the end of the barrel).
This stunning piece's most prominent feature is the cap – appropriately, if punningly – made of white resin in the form of a typical chef’s cap, complete with pleats. The cap top has been decorated with the profession’s logo and symbols, formed through contrasting laser-cut engraving.
For the pen barrel, a wood-facsimile resin has been adorned with metal pegs to resemble a chef’s knife’s handle, while the signature clip is moulded into the shape of a real knife, made in the same stainless steel as used for a real blade. The nib of the fountain pen is made of solid 18K gold and decorated with a Montegrappa filigree etching. This piston-fed fountain pen is offered with a medium nib (most popular) with fine and broad available to order.
Montegrappa’s Chef’s Pen is beautifully packaged on a domed cloche styled container complete with a full colour information/warranty/certificate booklet and will make the perfect gift for a family member or friend who loves to write as much as he or she loves to cook. Or eat.
